There is no public transport to get there.

*) For backpacker i recommend you to rent a scooter to reach this waterfall and use google maps as your navigator.

**) I recommend you to turn right on Jl Raya Bedugul – Singaraja or Pagayaman, Sukasada exactly. It’s a shortcut to the waterfall. It will one hour faster than you follow Google maps recommendation. The road is in good condition, but narrow  and steep some spots. No gas station in this road. Better you full your scooter petrol tank.

***) Make sure your scooter is powerful and good condition because the road so steep.

  1. Travel Bali Surabaya

    Sekumpul Waterfall is A must see part of your trip to northern Bali. There is a long walk to the falls but you get to enjoy a swim at the base of it which is brilliant. Stop for a moment here and take in the incredible surroundings – lush green forest/jungle on one side with a 2 huge cacades of water belting down beside while you rest in beautiful cool water.
